    Selected the 'Other' option, even it is always visible.

    I'd like to hide it, but, even with the highest sensibility, I have to almost crash the pointer against the wall to get it popped up.

    I always show it. Personally, I dig how it looks.

    Especially with a cool icon theme. ^_^

    Always show because I like it. Interestingly I had trouble with the font in FF that got better when I left the launcher on and FF narrowed that much. I also couldn't find a happy solution to the touchy autohide or top left corner setting.

    I have a 1920x1080 that I run at 1440x900

    Have a look = click ^_^

    I'm personally using nitrux for my app icons, and various others for folders stuff.

    I've set the icons to their smallest size (32px) and auto-hide.

    always on, I used to install ccsm just so I could have it always show even in 11.04 where it was set to /hide/dodge/whatever, though i size it small so I can have both more icons on there and so it takes up less space

    I seem to be in a distinct minority. I always show it because it's default. I used to mess with my desktops, but it usually came back to bite me later. So now I take whatever desktop gadgets the devs give me.

    I have gotten used to the Unity launcher and it no longer bothers me.
